Atlanta Falcons: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#21)

Last week: 20 (-1)

Record: 2-5

Tony Gonzalez changed his mind about his openness to a trade this week and, while one didn’t happen because the Falcons management is not ready to give up on the season, it’s a sign that perhaps internally the team no longer believes they can be a playoff team. They certainly didn’t look like one in Arizona and they have arguably one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Their opponent’s rate of moving the chains is at 79%, 3rd worst in the NFL, as they have forced 27 punts, 6 turnovers, and 2 failures on 4th down all season in 7 games.
